the first motion picture theater in the United 
States — a Golden Jubilee now being observed by 
the motion picture industry and its public as

Whereas, Chicago was one of the first important 
centers of motion picture production and was in 
the forefront launching this great industry which

men, women, and children everywhere; and,

role in serving the needs of this community by

Oil Progress Week in Chicago. 

•Whereas, America's growing defense program is

they are dependent, are equal to the demands be- 
ing placed upon them; and, 

Whereas, members of the American petroleum in- 
dustry, in an effort to inform the public what they 
are doing to produce more and better petroleum 
products to meet the growing civilian and military 
needs, have designated the week of October 14-20, 
1951, as Oil Progress Week ; and, 

Whereas, the many citizens of our community

many contributions which oil men among us have 
made and are making toward the betterment of our

Cleaner Air Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, the period October 21 to October 28 
has been designated as National Cleaner Air Week 
throughout the nation for the purpose of reminding 
citizens of the damaging effects of air pollution, 
and to make them more keenly aware of the meth- 
ods available to abate this public nuisance; and, 

Whereas, the City of Chicago is engaged in a 
continuing effort to make our city a cleaner place 
in which to live; and, 

Whereas, Chicago, as a highly industrialized com- 
munity, requires the consumption of large quanti- 
ties of fuel ; and, 

Whereas, the highest effective possible utiliza- 
tion and most efficient consumption of this fuel are 
essential to the production goal of our national 
defense program; and, 

Whereas, the active cooperation of our citizens is 
necessary to the attainment of this goal since all 
of us, in our normal activities, tend to generate the 
waste materials that constitute the atmospheric 
pollution, the ill effects of which no citizen can 
escape ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do proclaim the period from 
October 21 to October 27, 1951, inclusive, as Clean- 
er Air Week In Chicago, and in so doing do urgent- 
ly request all citizens to begin a continuing effort to 
cooperate with the various city departments and 
civic and business groups interested in this prob- 
lem which is so vital to our health and well being. 

Dated this 25th day of September, A.D. 1951. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

ernment in making such grants. 

"38.01. No municipality or political sub-

gress approved May 13, 1946, being a Public

proved by the Department of Aeronautics. No 
such municipality or political subdivision shall 
directly accept, receive, receipt for, or disburse 
any funds granted by the United States under 
the Federal Airport Act, but it shall designate 
the Department of Aeronautics as its agent to 
accept, receive, receipt for and disburse such 
funds, provided, however, nothing in this sec- 
tion shall be construed to prohibit any munici- 
pality or any political subdivision of more than 
500,000 inhabitants from disbursing such funds 
through its corporate authorities. It shall 
enter into an agreement with the Department 
prescribing the terms and conditions of such 
agency in accordance with federal laws, rules 
and regulations and applicable laws of this 
state. 

"40. All monies accepted for disbursement 
by the Department pursuant to Section 38 shall 
be deposited in the State Treasury, and, unless 
otherwise prescribed by the authority from 
which the money is received, kept in separate 
funds, designated according to the purposes for 
which the monies were made available, and 
held by the State in trust for such purposes. 
All such monies are hereby appropriated for 
the purposes for which the same were made 
available, to be expended in accordance with 
Federal laws and rules and regulations there- 
under and with this Act. The Department is 
authorized, whether acting for this State or as 
the agent of any of its municipalities or other 
political subdivisions, or when requested by 
the United States Government or any agency 
or department thereof, subject to Section 41. 
to disburse such monies for the designated 
purposes, but this shall not preclude any other 
authorized method of disbursement." 
Now, Therefore, in order to insure the lawful, 
orderly and expeditious development of said 
project and the lawful channeling, custody, dis- 
bursement, and accounting of and for such funds

powered and appointed to act as agent for

State of Illinois Requested to Pay Entire Cost of 

Widening of Present, or Construction of New, 

Bridge over Sanitary and Ship Canal at 

S. Cicero Av.; Etc. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending that the following proposed resolu- 
tion submitted therewith be adopted: 

Whereas, A double-leaf trunnion bascule bridge 
was constructed in 1927 by the Sanitary District 
of Chicago, at its sole cost, over and across the 
Sanitary and Ship Canal at S. Cicero Avenue, and 
has one roadway 38 feet wide located at the east 
side of the center line of S. Cicero Avenue, so 
placed that a second roadway could be added at a 
subsequent time; and 

Whereas, Due to such location of the present 
roadway, the approaches to the bridge have re- 
verse curves which have become a serious traffic 
hazard and have resulted in the addition of a 
raised median to prevent head-on collisions, there- 
by dividing the roadway into strips each 18.5 feet 
wide, which are inadequate for two lanes of ve- 
hicular traffic; and 

Whereas, The said bridge and its approaches 
were maintained by the Sanitary District of Chi- 
cago until September 16, 1949, when the Illinois 
Supreme Court relieved the Sanitary District of 
Chicago of further obligations for the mainte- 
nance, repair and replacement of this bridge ; and 

Whereas, This bridge serves a great volume of 
interstate, intrastate, county and inter-county 
through traffic, as well as ordinary City traffic, and 
as this bridge is located in the outskirts of the 
City, Cicero Avenue forming the City westerly 
limits from Roosevelt Road to Pershing Road and 
also from 65th Street to 87th Street, and as major 
areas west of the Cicero Avenue City, limits, both 
north and south of this bridge, are served by it; 
and 

Whereas, The maintenance and repair of this 
bridge has become burdensome and very costly to 
the City of Chicago, and in view of the major en- 
joyment of the use of this bridge by non-City 
residents and through traffic, it is an unfair im- 
position on Chicago's taxpayers to require it to 
pay the entire cost of maintenance and recon- 
struction of this bridge; and 

Whereas, This bridge is too narrow for the vol- 
ume of traffic using it, and the approaches thereto 
form a dangerous jog in this street, and that in 
order to provide for free and safe movement of the 
heavy traffic of this important artery, this bridge 
should be widened as originally contemplated by 
the Sanitary District of Chicago, or be replaced 
by an adequate new bridge in proper alignment 
with the street, at a cost which would be an undue 
burden on the City of Chicago especially in view 
of the extensive non-City use of this bridge; and 

Whereas, This bridge was not built by the City, 
and as the City should not be compelled to assume 
such a great burden of the cost of reconstruction

and maintenance because the major direct benefits 
thereof are enjoyed largely by non-City residents, 
and as it is on a State bond issue route, it is no 
more than just that the State of Illinois should 
bear the entire cost of the preparation of studies 
already made by the City and the entire cost of 
reconstruction and maintenance of this bridge and 
its approaches; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the State of Illinois be 
and it is hereby requested to pay the entire cost 
of the widening or the construction of a new bridge 
over the Sanitary and Ship Canal at S. Cicero 
Avenue, and the reconstruction of the approaches 
thereto, including adequate provisions for traffic 
beneath railroad crossings approximately 300 feet 
and also 900 feet south of said bridge, and also 
thereafter the cost of the maintenance of said 
bridge and its approaches. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
resolution was adopted, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen DArco, Harvey, Carey, Cohen,

Deferred. 

The Committee on Planning submitted the follow- 
ing report, which was, on motion of Alderman 
Murphy, Deferred and Ordered Published: 

Chicago, October 1, 1951 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
The Chicago Land Clearance Commission sub- 
mitted a proposed ordinance to the City Council on 
June 14, 1951, page 357, which was on that date 
referred to the Committee on Housing, for approval 
of the City Council to the acquisition by the said 
Chicago Land Clearance Commission, for slum 
clearance and redevelopment as a light industrial 
or commercial district, of the property in the area 
bounded by W. Polk Street, W. Roosevelt Road, 
S. Canal Street and the proposed South Route of 
the Expressway System. 

Your Committee on Planning begs leave to ad- 
vise Your Honorable Body that on this date it held 



a public hearing on said proposed ordinance, which 
public hearing was held pursuant to notice pub- 
lished in newspapers of general circulation in the 
City of Chicago, as required by Section 105 (d) of 
the Federal Housing Act of 1949, and made a study 
of the city planning aspects of same, and, as a re- 
sult of said public hearing and said study, has 
reached the conclusion that the proposal of the 
Chicago Land Clearance Commission in this matter 
contemplates the best use that can be made of the 
property involved in its relationship to the over-all 
city plan, and is of the opinion that the said ordi- 
nance should be passed as amended by the Com- 
mittee on Housing to provide that the said Com- 
mission shall not acquire by exercise of condemna- 
tion or the right of eminent domain, prior to July 
1, 1955, any land or premises being presently used

COMMITTEE ON SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS. 



Declaration Made for Reactivation of Board of Local 
Improvements for Limited Purpose. 

The Committee on Special Assessments submitted 
a report recommending that the City Council adopt a 
proposed resolution (submitted therewith) reading as 
follows : 

Whereas, There are a number of neighborhoods 
in the City of Chicago in which the property is al- 
most one hundred per cent improved with buildings 
and have a good tax payment record where there 
are streets, alleys and sidewalks requiring paving 
that cannot be financed out of general corporate 
funds but might be financed by assessment against 
the property to be benefited; and 

Whereas, The City Comptroller has advised the 
Committee on Special Assessments that he has con- 
tacted a number of contractors and investment 
houses to obtain their reactions to the feasibility 
of paving streets, alleys and sidewalks through 
special assessment proceedings, and is of the opin- 
ion that under certain conditions contractors would 
accept special assessment bonds in payment for the 
cost of constructing local improvements; and 

Whereas, The Secretary of the Board of Local 
Improvements has informed the Committee on 
Special Assessments that it would be possible for 
the Board of Local Improvements to function for 
the remainder of this year in handling a number 
of proposed improvements by borrowing engineer- 
ing and other needed help from the Bureau of 
Sewers, Streets and Sidewalks, but that the Board 
would require an additional appropriation for 1952 
in the amount of $60,000.00; and the Corporation 
Counsel has consented to handle the necessary 
legal work for the remainder of this year with the 
personnel now in his department, but would require 
an additional appropriation for 1952 of approxi- 
mately $24,000.00; and the City Comptroller has 
advised that he will require an appropriation of 
approximately $10,000.00 for the year 1952; and 

Whereas, The Committee on Special Assessments 
is mindful of the unfortunate experience of de- 
linquency in large special assessment projects em- 
barked upon in the past and does not now recom- 
mend the institution of a similar large scale special 
assessment improvement program, nevertheless, it 
is the judgment of the Committee on Special As- 
sessments that a limited number of special assess- 
ment proceedings should be instituted for the 
purpose of determining the feasibility of paving 
streets, alleys and sidewalks by this method ; there- 
fore be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby declare itself as being in favor of 
reactivating the Board of Local Improvements for 
the limited purpose of paving residential streets, 
alleys and sidewalks in neighborhoods which are 
built up and prove suitable for improvements by 
this method; and be it further 

Resolved, That the Committee on Finance be and 
it hereby is requested to make provision in the 
1952 appropriation ordinance for the additional 
appropriations necessary to carry out the above- 
mentioned limited program for local improvements 
by special assessments. 

On motion of Alderman Cohen the committee's rec- 



ommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
resolution was adopted, by yeas and nays as follows : 

Yeas — Aldermen DArco, Harvey, Carey, Cohen,

Nays — None. 



Request Made for Paving of Specified Alleys and 
Streets by Special Assessment. 

The Committee on Special Assessment submitted 
a report recommending that the City Council adopt a 
proposed resolution (submitted therewith) reading 
as follows: 

Whereas, Petitions have been received by vari- 
ous Aldermen for the construction of local im- 
provements to be paid for by special assessment 
on the property benefited; and 

Whereas, For many years the making of local 
improvements payable out of special assessments 
has not been authorized by the City Council; and 

Whereas, The City Council has this day author- 
ized commencement of a limited program for the 
paving of sidewalks, streets and alleys to be paid 
for by assessment on the property specially bene- 
fited; now therefore be it 

Resolved, The Board of Local Improvements is 
requested to give consideration to the following 
local-improvement projects : 

Paving of the alley lying between W. 43rd Street 
and W. 43rd Place from S. State Street to S.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

Whereas, the Banking Group is willing to pro- 
vide engineering, legal and financial services for 
the purpose of: 

(A) Determining a sound, feasible, general 
plan or scheme embodying location, size and 
type of facility and type of revenue bonds to 
be used, including aggregate amount to be is- 
sued for the project or projects, maturities, 
yield and security; 

(B) Assuring marketability of such revenue 
bonds; and 

(C) Providing all necessary financing. 
Now, Therefore, 

It is agreed by the parties hereto, for and in 
consideration of the mutual covenants and agree- 
ments hereinafter set forth, as follows : 

1. This agreement shall be effective only as 
to those projects for the area bounded by E. and 
W. Grand Avenue, N. and S. Halsted St., E. and 
W. Roosevelt Rd. and N. and S. Michigan Avenue. 

2. The Banking Group agrees to employ na- 
tionally recognized engineers in the field involved 
to advise it with respect to the preliminary de- 
tails of location, design, estimated construction 
costs, anticipated usage and other matters re- 
lating to the auto parking facilities required, to 
determine if revenue bonds to finance auto park- 
ing facilities in said area can be successfully 
marketed in sufficient amount to complete the 
desired project. 

3. The Banking Group agrees to employ 
municipal bond attorneys skilled and experienced 
in revenue financing to advise and counsel as to 
the legal problems involved in such financing and 
to employ any other legal counsel considered by 
it to be necessary to advise it, in connection with 
the problems incident to the financing of the 
project. 

4. The Banking Group agrees to use the in- 
vestment experience and skills of the members 
comprising the said Banking Group to correlate 
the work of engineers and attorneys engaged on 
such project. 

5. The City will make available to the Bank- 
ing Group any current plans, surveys or data 
pertaining to the project which the City may 
have prepared. 

6. When the matters set forth in paragraphs 
2, 3 and 4 have been completed, the Banking 
Group will submit a report to the Committee on 
Traffic and Public Safety for consideration by the 
Committee and by the City Council as to whether 
or not it appears practicable to finance such 
project on a self-liquidating basis. If the said 
report finds the project to be feasible, the report 
shall contain the findings and recommendations 
of the Banking Group and their advisers and 
shall specify the maximum amount of City of 
Chicago parking revenue bonds necessary to be 
authorized for the project, the date of issue of 
such bonds, the maturity thereof, provisions as 
to their redemption prior to maturity, the rate 
of interest within the statutory limit and other 
pertinent details. A draft of ordinance providing 
for the necessary legal steps shall accompany 
the said report. 

7. The City agrees to provide full cooperation 
with the Banking Group by City Departments 
and the Chicago Plan Commission, and necessary 
action upon legal, engineering, financial and de- 



velopment data submitted by the said Banking 
Group without unreasonable delay. 

8. In the event a form of ordinance submitted 
under the provisions of paragraph 6 above, after 
approval as to form and legality by the Corpora- 
tion Counsel of the City of Chicago, or a substi- 
tute form of ordinance acceptable to the Banking 
Group, similarly approved, is passed by the City 
Council and becomes effective, the Banking Group 
agrees to purchase from the City all such revenue 
bonds issued pursuant to the plan and recom- 
mendation contained in the said report submitted 
by the Banking Group pursuant to the provisions 
of this agreement. Provided, that at least two 
weeks preceding tender of such bonds, the Bank- 
ing Group engineers shall have prepared and de- 
livered to said Banking Group a report in form 
and substance satisfactory to the Banking Group 
evidencing that anticipated revenues are ade- 
quate to pay all costs of operation and mainte- 
nance, with suitable reserves for renewals, re- 
placements and contingencies, and to pay interest 
on and principal of the revenue bonds as they 
mature as well as to create reasonable reserves 
therefor with customary margins of safety. Said 
bonds are to be accompanied by a legal opinion 
of a recognized bond counsel selected by the 
Banking Group, approving without qualification, 
the legality of such bonds and holding that the 
income therefrom is exempt from Federal Income 
taxes; and provided, further, that there has not 
been, in the opinion of the Banking Group, any 
substantial adverse change in the market in the 
United States for bonds of this character since 
the date of submission of the report referred to 
in paragraph 6 above. 

9. The Banking Group reserves the right to 
form a group of dealers to underwrite and dis- 
tribute any or all such bonds. 

10. In the event that the report referred to 
in paragraph 6 above is to the effect that the 
project cannot be financed on a self-liquidating 
basis, the Banking Group will assume all costs 
of investigation of the project including the cost 
of engineering, legal and financial services, and 
this agreement shall thereupon be terminated as 
to such project and neither the Banking Group 
nor the City shall be further obligated hereunder 
as to such project. 

11. In the event the City Council by ordinance 
directs the financing of the project by sale other 
than a negotiated sale to the Banking Group, the 
City agrees to pay the Banking Group for all of 
its services for such project, including engineer- 
ing, legal, financial and development services, an 
amount equivalent to iy 2 % of the par value of 
such bonds at the time of delivery thereof and 
payment therefor, with payment for said services 
to be made only from the proceeds of such sale. 
The Banking Group shall be entitled to receive 
such payment even ihough it is the purchaser of 
the bonds at such sale. 

12. The City agrees that it will not enter into 
any agreement for financing such parking facili- 
ties in the area described in paragraph 1 above 
with any other person or group during the term 
of this agreement. 

13. This agreement shall terminate on De- 
cember 31, 1952. 

[Signature forms omitted] 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in force and 
effect from and after its passage.

Whereas, The 174th anniversary of the death of 
Brigadier-General Casimir Pulaski is one of deep 
significance and recollection in this hour when the 
heroism and undying spirit of the free peoples of 
the world are outstanding in a fight for world 
freedom; and 

Whereas, This honored hero who gave his life 
in the services of this country, the land of his adop- 
tion, is beloved by his people for his unceasing fight 
against tyranny and oppression, both in his own 
country from which he was forced to flee and in 
America where he distinguished himself in the 
valiant forces of Washington's Army during the 
American Revolution; and 

Whereas, Casimir Pulaski died in battle when 
only thirty-one years old — a brief but glorious 
lifetime spent in the cause of freedom — the edify- 
ing example of this patriot who gave his life in 
defense of the very principles we fight now to re- 
tain; now, therefore,

observance of Navy Day in recognition of the dis- 
tinguished part in our country's history which our 
Navy has had since its earliest beginnings under 
the Continental Congress in October, 1775; and 

Whereas, Chicago, by its close proximity to the 
Great Lakes Naval Training Station and by its 
even closer attachment through the naval services 
of thousands of Chicago men and women, is always 
interested in joining its sister cities throughout^ the 
country in honoring our Navy and its various 
branches for their glorious achievements in war 
and their guardianship in peace; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Saturday, 
October 27, 1951, as Navy Day In Chicago, and call 
the attention of our citizens to the programs plan- 
ned by the Chicago Council of the Navy League

Industrial Management Society, sponsor of the 
National Management Engineering Clinic ; and 

Whereas, many nationally prominent leaders of 
Management, Labor, and Government will be in our 
city to address the participants and their guests; 
and 

Whereas, a prime purpose of the National Man- 
agement Engineering Clinic is to inform business 
and industrial leaders of Chicago's contribution 
toward stabilizing the economic structure of the 
Nation; and 

Whereas, another purpose of the Clinic is to 
bring to industry the methods and tools required 
to fight an "All-Out War on Industrial Inefficiency;" 
and 

Whereas, the Industrial Management Society, 



through these Clinics, has added to Chicago's re- 
nown as the National Center of Technical "Know- 
How;"

the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week 
of October 29 to November 3, 1951, as Industrial 
Management Week In Chicago, and recommend and 
urge that full advantage be taken by our citizens 
of this opportunity to acquaint themselves with the 
men, industries, and educational institutions re-

trial management.

Whereas, November 21, 1951, will mark the 331st 
anniversary of the signing of the Mayflower 
Compact — one of the most important documents 
in the history of America; and 

Whereas, the Mayflower Compact established for 
the early New England settlers the principles of 
government — based on ideals of freedom, inde- 
pendence, and justice — which marked the beginning 
of America's political life and influenced the entire 
subsequent development of our nation ; and 

Whereas, today when our Armed forces are again 
fighting for American ideals and principles, it is im- 
portant to present day Americans to know the 
sources and understand the history of our great 
political heritage; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Wednes- 
day, November 21, 1951, as Mayflower Compact 
Day In Chicago, and suggest that all our citizens, 
and especially schools and all civic and patriotic

Salary Increases, Etc. for Members of Police Dept. 
and Fire Dept. 

Also communications addressed to the City Clerk 
under date of October 24, 1951, from The Chicago 
Patrolmen's Association and The Firemen's Asso- 
ciation of Chicago, urging that in the preparation of 
the appropriation ordinance for the year 1952 the 
City Council give consideration to the merits of their 
arguments for increases in salaries, a five-day work 
week, and other adjustments in working conditions 
of the members of the Police and Fire Departments. 
— Referred to the Committee on Finance. 

Quarterly Report of Department of Welfare. 

Also a report of the activities of the Department of 
Welfare for the months of July, August and Septem- 
ber, 1951, submitted by A. E. Rose, Commissioner.— 
— Referred to the Committee on Finance. 



Departmental requests for the year 1952 for 
Corporate Purposes are $113,156,990.75, which is 
$21,863,586.81 in excess of estimated appropriable 
resources. 

The original 1951 appropriation from this fund 
was increased by a supplemental appropriation 
ordinance. The increase available from taxes for 
the year 1952, over the original and supplemental 
levies for 1951, is largely offset by a decrease in 
the surplus available for appropriation in 1952. 

Revenue available from the Vehicle Tax Fund 
has been estimated on the same basis as in the 
appropriation ordinance for 1951. An increase in 
vehicle license fees, or in the percentage thereof 
transferred to the Corporate Fund, will affect the 
amount available for appropriation in both the 
Corporate and the Vehicle Tax Funds. 

Departmental requests for Water Works Fund 
are $30,804,061.70, which is $719,598.70 in excess 
of the estimated amount available. 

Water Fund revenue for 1952 reflects the in- 
crease in water rates authorized July 11, 1951." 
-Referred to the Committee on Finance.

COMMITTEE ON HOUSING. 



Proposals in Reference to Removal of Veterans 

Temporary Housing Projects — Action on 

Committee's Recommendation 

Deferred. 

The Committee on Housing submitted the follow- 
ing report, which was, on motion of Alderman 
Merriam, Deferred and Ordered Published: 

Chicago, October 29, 1951 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Housing has had under con- 
sideration the report submitted herewith on vet- 
erans' temporary housing, prepared and presented 
by the Chicago Housing Authority at the sugges- 
tion of the Committee on Housing, together with a 
deprogramming schedule attached thereto for re- 
moval of such temporary housing projects. 

Your committee is of the opinion that the vet- 
erans' temporary housing projects should be re- 
moved as early as reasonably possible, that the 
state of deterioration of the projects should deter- 
mine the order of removal, and that the deprogram- 
ming of the projects should be undertaken with a 
view to the City's obtaining from the Chicago 
Housing Authority the largest amount of money 
possible for application against the $2,000,000 loan 
made by the City to the Authority at the time the 
veterans' temporary program was undertaken. 
Your committee therefore recommends: 

1) That Your Honorable Body concur in the 
determination of the Chicago Housing Authority, 
contained in said report, that the removal of vet- 
erans' temporary housing projects be initiated at 
this time; and 

2) That Your Honorable Body approve the 
deprogramming schedule, attached to and made 
a part of said report, as changed by your com- 
mittee, with the understanding, as it pertains to 
the individual projects listed therein, that the 
Chicago Housing Authority will undertake earlier 
removal of the respective projects if and where 
possible, and, with the further understanding 
that the Chicago Housing Authority shall com- 
plete the entire removal program by September 
30, 1955; and 

3) That in the execution of this program the 
Chicago Housing Authority exercise care that 
undue hardship not be imposed on individual 
families in the deprogramming of these projects. 

Your committee further recommends that the 
said report be published and filed. 



These recommendations were concurred in by 15 
members of the committee, with one dissenting 

vote - , -^ j 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Robert E. Merriam, 

Chairman. 

The report of the Chicago Housing Authority re- 
ferred to in the foregoing committee report reads 
as follows: 

The Chicago Housing Authority 

October 3, 1951 
Memorandum 
To: The Chairman, Commitee on Housing, 

City Council 
From: Chicago Housing Authority 
Subject: Report on Program of Temporary Houses 
for Veterans. 
At the meeting of the Authority held on Sep- 
tember 10, 1951, the Commissioners reviewed all 
aspects of the fiscal and physical condition of the 
temporary housing projects built for veterans at 
the close of World War II. Herewith is a report 
on the subject, together with a plan in relation 
thereto approved by the Commissioners at that 
meeting. 

Section I. Background Information. 
For the benefit of the members of the Housing 
Committee who may not be familiar with the back- 
ground of the veterans' temporary housing pro- 
gram, the following information is given: 
' Unlike any other major city in the country, the 
City of Chicago was able to avoid the problems at 
temporary housing for war workers during World 
War II The Housing Authority succeeded in hav- 
ing all allocations made to it for the housing of 
war workers in the form of permanent housing. 
Under this program Altgeld Gardens was con- 
structed, as were Wentworth Gardens and West 
Chesterfield Homes. 

After the war, however, there were no re- 
sources whatsoever to construct permanent hous- 
ing for returning veterans with Federal assistance. 
The Lanham Act (Public Law 849, Seventy-Sixth 
Congress) provided only temporary housing tor 
this type of program. This Act provided that the 
Federal Government would pay the costs of dis- 
mantling, transporting, and reconstructing a varie- 
ty of types of temporary units and barracks 
(primarily built for war workers and army per- 
sonnel), providing that localities made land avail- 
able and contributed the costs of site improve- 
ments.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



1123 



Because of the acute shortage of housing for the 
City's returning veterans, the Chicago City Council 
requested the Housing Authority to act as its 
agent in carrying out such a program. The Author- 
ity was directed to utilize land leased from other 
public bodies (at a dollar a year), and the Council 
made available the sum of $2,000,000 as a loan to 
provide the necessary local funds. In consideration 
of the large Federal contribution to the locality, 
all other cities in the country made this local con- 
tribution as a grant, but, because of certain legal 
and technical difficulties, the CHA received these 
funds as a loan payable "solely ... out of the rents 
and income from such projects as and when re- 
ceived and from no other source". Subsequent to 
the $2,000,000 loan, when it was evident that addi- 
tional funds would be required to complete the 
site development, the City Council authorized an 
outright grant to CHA of $100,000 and also the 
use of Veterans' Program income not to exceed 
$60,000. As has been repeatedly said (see the 
report of the Housing Committee in the investiga- 
tion of the CHA dated March 1947), it was not 
contemplated then nor since that the loan could 
ever be repaid in full. It was hoped, however, that 
the Authority would be able from time to time to 
make repayments. The Authority made one pay- 
ment in the amount of $40,000 on December 3, 
1946 and intends to make another of $260,000 in 
the immediate future. 

Under the program, 22 projects were erected 
totalling 3,359 units; 1,000 of these were trailers, 
500 were demountables (being of a semi-permanent 
nature), and the remainder were remodelled one- 
and two-story barracks or quonset huts. 

The Lanham Act provided that all temporary 
units constructed under this program were to be 
dismantled within two years after the emergency 
declared by the President dated September 8, 1939. 

On May 10, 1949, the Authority informed the 
Chairman of the Committee on Housing of the 
City Council of the proposed procedure for depro- 
gramming 1,000 trailers designated as Projects 
Nos. 11251-51, 52, 53, 54 and 55. On June 21, 
1949, the Housing Committee concurred in the 
recommendations. 

On October 28, 1949, the City Council passed 
a series of Ordinances covering these temporaries 
setting forth a waiver of the removal requirements 
of Section 313 of the Lanham Act. 

The City Council, however, also on that date, 
adopted an Ordinance which reads as follows: 

"Resolved, That the City Council of the City 
of Chicago hereby recommends to the Chicago 
Housing Authority that veterans' temporary 
housing projects designated as Projects Nos. 
11250, 11251, 11256, 11270 and 11348 be removed 
from the sites on which they are situated by 
January 1, 1951, if possible." 

Because of their extremely deteriorated condi- 
tion, the trailers were not only operating at a 
deficit and thus jeopardizing funds available for 
the maintenance of the rest of the program, but 
were also a physical and health hazard to their 
occupants. The last trailer occupant moved on 
October 1, 1950, and all trailers have now been 
removed from, the five trailer sites. 

The time has now come to undertake the next 
step in the deprogramming of the temporary units. 

Section II. Physical Condition of Temporary 
Projects. 

During the past several weeks the Authority 
made a survey of the physical condition of the 



remaining 17 temporary housing projects. This 
survey was made by the General Manager of the 
veterans' program together with the foremen of 
the plumbers, carpenters, pipefitters and elec- 
tricians crews. 

It was evident that several of the projects had 
reached a condition where continued operation 
would require the expenditure of monies in excess 
of the income derived from these individual opera- 
tions. As an example, Airport Homes at 60th 
Street and Karlov Avenue contains buildings two 
stories in height, mounted on wooden posts placed 
in the ground. These posts are rotting, and as a 
result floors and foundations are beginning to 
settle, causing not only openings in the floor panels 
but also breakage of plumbing lines due to stresses. 
The crawl spaces under these buildings are so 
small that it is impossible for a maintenance man 
to get under the building without extensive ex- 
cavation. This makes the replacement of rotted 
wooden post supports almost impossible. Further, 
Edison Park Homes at Touhy and Overhill Avenues 
is of such construction that it is not possible to 
maintain watertight units. • As a result, even 
though this project is painted approximately every 
two years, the paint peels off soon after each 
painting. 

Again, to illustrate the extent of deterioration 
of the buildings, we recently employed, for a tem- 
porary period, an additional six carpenters to make 
repairs prior to exterior painting at certain of 
these projects. It was estimated that these six 
men could repair an entire project in five days. 
However, after beginning work, it was necessary 
to spend as much as three weeks at each project, 
and replacement of rotted wood was not nearly as 
complete as would have been desirable. In many 
instances, when one exterior board was removed, 
the adjoining board was found to be equally de- 
teriorated, so that a thorough job would neces- 
sitate the equivalent of a partial rebuilding of the 
structure. In addition, the plumbing, electrical 
and other fixtures, and heating stoves, are of war- 
time quality and would now have to be replaced in 
large part if the operations are to be continued. 

At the time these buildings were built as far 
back as 1940 it was intended that they would be 
taken out of use not more than six months after 
the end of World War II. Thus many of them 
have by now been in use eleven years. Only 500 
of the units were built originally so that they, 
could be demounted and reconstructed elsewhere. 
The remainder suffered by the. process and arrived 
on the sites in deplorable condition. No recon- 
struction this side of complete rebuilding could 
have remedied the effects. 

While it is true that the program as a whole 
is operating with a small net income, this has been 
accomplished only because of the fact that the 
buildings have not been adequately maintained. 
Experience and the work load have shown that if 
they were to be adequately maintained from now 
on it would be necessary that an additional 25 
workmen be employed at a cost of approximately 
$150,000 a year. If this were done the operating 
reserves would be consumed within a short period 
of time and the program would automatically have 
to stop since there are no means to finance a 
deficit operation. 

Section HI. Fiscal Report. 

The Authority has submitted quarterly state- 
ments of incone and expense on the temporary 
projects since August 10, 1949. During the period 
when the trailers were in operation, a deficit of 
$148,504.50 was incurred. This was finally over- 



1124 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



October 31, 1951 



come after the end of the trailer deprogramming 
by the net income production of the other units. 
The program as a whole reflected an operating sur- 
plus of $33,200.67 at the end of . the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1951. 

During this time there has accummulated a bal- 
ance in the repair, maintenance and replacement 
reserve account, as of June 30, 1951, of 
$362,370.16; there was also a balance of $186,- 
009.55 in the vacancy and collection loss reserve 
account. Thus, there is on hand presently a total 
reserve of $548,379.71. 

All sites used in the program were leased from 
public bodies with a provision in the lease that at 
its termination the sites would be restored to their 
original condition. This requires that a minimum 
reserve of not less than $175,000 must be main- 
tained to cover the costs of removing the build- 
ings and restoring the land in accordance with this 
requirement. 

Section IV. Continued Demand for Units by 
Chicago's Veterans. 

At the time the decision was made to deprogram 
the trailers, the Commissioners publicly stated that 
the recommendation to deprogram was being made 
in spite of the fact that there was and would con- 
tinue to be in the foreseeable future a very urgent 
need for housing for veterans. This still remains 
the case. There are at present on file applications 
from approximately 1,500 veterans eligible for 
occupancy in temporary veterans' units. Applica- 
tions for these temporary housing units are re- 
ceived from approximately 100 veterans' families 
each month whereas moveouts average only about 
20 per month. This demand remains even for the 
buildings which are in the least satisfactory con- 
dition. 

Furthermore, the temporary dwellings have been 
an essential part of the relocation program for the 
families unhoused by the slum clearance operations 
of the Chicago Housing Authority. Veteran fami- 
lies living on these sites whose incomes are too 
high for low-rent public housing are eligible for 
the temporary veterans' program. This program, 
therefore, has been a valuable resource in handling 
the difficult problem of relocating ineligible site 
families, in spite of the condition of the buildings. 

A decision, therefore, to take any of this out of 
use not only diminishes the source of housing for 
middle income families, but adds to the already 
very heavy load (more than 7,500) of middle in- 
come families unhoused by a number of public 
works at the present time. 



Section V. Recommendations. 

At the time the temporary housing program 
was launched there was a universal fear that these 
temporary housing projects would be permitted to 
become, in effect, permanent projects. The Com- 
missioners of the Authority, however, have been 
committed to a policy of bringing about their re- 
moval at the earliest possible date. At the meet- 
ing of the Commissioners on September 10, 1951 
the following determinations were made: 

(1) It was agreed that the removal of the 
temporary housing projects would be initiated 
at this time beginning with the projects in the 
worst physical condition. The attached schedule 
indicates the order of removal. 

(2) Since the suggested deprogramming 
schedule calls for the removal of buildings before 
they represent too serious a deficit operation, it 
is possible to make at this time a substantial 
payment to the City against the loan. There- 
fore, the Housing Authority is prepared now to 
make a payment to the City of Chicago of 
$260,000. 

(3) Although the schedule sets forth the 
general outline of the order and rate of depro- 
gramming, it is not to be regarded as a firm and 
fast commitment. The actual rate will depend 
upon the ability of the families in the projects 
to find other dwellings for themselves. 

(4) The procedure to be followed in the de- 
programming will be the same as that followed 
in the deprogramming of the trailers, namely: 

(a) As a unit becomes vacant it will not 
be re-rented. 

(b) Eligible families will be given priority 
in the permanent projects and will be- moved 
from the project as soon as possible and the 
vacant units not re-rented. (Approximately 
25% of the families are presumably eligible.) 

(c) The Authority's relocation staff will 
assist in the rehousing of the ineligible fami- 
lies in the same way that it now assists fami- 
lies on slum sites. 

(5) Since the deprogramming of all the sites 
will require a period of at least three to five 
years, and since further payments to the- 
City are dependent upon the removal of units 
roughly in accordance with the attached sched- 
ule, there should be little delay in beginning the 
program.

Chairman. 



The communication transmitted with the foregoing 
committee report, addressed to the Chairman and 
members of the Committee on Traffic and Public 
Safety (signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways, under date of October 
1, 1951), reads as follows: 

"I am presenting herewith for your considera- 
tion a draft of an ordinance to amend the ordinance 
of September 5, 1946 as amended, which provides 
for the location and construction of the Northwest 
Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway System. 
"The amendatory ordinance provides for the sub- 
stitution of new sheets numbered 1 and 3, dated 
October 31, 1951, for sheets 1 and 3 of the General 
Plans and Drawings, which accompany said ordi- 
nance of September 5, 1946, as amended. 

"The amendatory ordinance also provides for an 
amendment in the text of the general ordinance, 
so as to reflect the changes made by the substitu- 
tion of the new sheets in the General Plans and 
Drawings. 

"The only change on sheet 1 is to add a revision 
date. The change on sheet 3 revises the alignment 
between W. Lake Street and W. Hubbard Street by 
moving the highway to the west. This change will 
require the taking of additional vacant property on 
the west between W. Fulton Street and W. Wayman 
Street, but will eliminate the taking of improved 
property on the east in the same block, thus effect- 
ing a very substantial saving in right-of-way costs. 
"I recommend this ordinance be adopted." 

On motion of Alderman Keane the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
ordinance was passed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen D'Arco, Harvey, Carey, Cohen, 
Merriam, Muir, Bohling, Olin, DuBois, Pacini,

Ronan, Keane, Rostenkowski, Brandt, Geisler, Peska, 
Cilella, Lancaster, Cullerton, Jacobs, Immel, Bauler, 
Burmeister, Young, Hoellen, Freeman, Bremer — 43. 

Nays — None.

cago on September 5, 1946 passed an ordinance 
(Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council of 
the City of Chicago of September 5, 1946, pages

improvement and construction of the Northwest 



Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway System, 
which ordinance was amended by ordinances passed 
by the City Council of the City of Chicago on De-

1946, pages 6663 to 6665, inclusive) on May 11,

ment, attached to and made a part of said ordi-

plaintiff therein might use the premises situated at 
W 131st Street and S. Homan Avenue in Cook 
County as an unrestricted industrial area ; and 

Whereas, The use of this area for unrestricted 
industrial use would permit the location of oil re-
